Gender: Male

About Me:
I married right after my return from Vietnam, and am still married to the same wonderful womn. I have six children, all them grown up now. I have five grandchildren. Hunting,fishing, shooting and collecting guns are my hobbies.

I retired as Fire Chief of the Governors Island Fire Dept. in 1996. I have since moved from Long Island, NY to Florida. I continue to work doing something different, driving an 18 wheeler over the road. It is something I always wanted to do. Who knows, next year I may go to chef schoo.

I'll Go (A Soldiers Oath) I would like to share with you, a music video dedicated to all soldiers called I'll Go (A Soldiers Oath) by Kelly's Lot. It is a tribute to the military, and to all veterans, and is well worth watching. Please feel free to share it anywhere you'd like. Here's the link (this is not a download, simply a link to a YouTube video): I'll Go (A Soldiers Oath) - Kelly's Lot - @ Cahuenga General Store Or copy & paste the link below into your address bar: Thank you for your time. Hope you like the video, Tamie L. Towers Patriot P.S. My dear friend Kelly Zirbes of Kelly's Lot wrote and performed this song and has given permission for the video to be shared and/or embedded anywhere.
